What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I want to help raise medical funds for one of my closest friends who risks internal decapitation every single second of her life. Please sponsor me to lose 7st in weight. Below is just a snippet of Nadine's story:

She is the most loving, caring and compassionate person I know, always putting others first and genuinely taking the time to listen even when her own world is imploding.

Nadine has a rare and very serious health issue which if left untreated will kill her but not before robbing her of all the things we take for granted every day.
Imagine getting in the car to travel to see friends knowing that bumping over a small pothole in the road could cause you to be in hospital for days on morphine for the pain, or even something as simple as your pillow in bed being a little too high could dislocate your head and neck and kill you.

If there’s a problem we find a solution, if the car is broken take it to a garage, if the sink is blocked get a plumber, if you’re ill go to the doctors, but what happens if the doctors can’t help?
Nadine had a serious accident a few years ago and since then has suffered life altering neurological symptoms which are getting worse and worse as the weeks go by. She has seen many specialists from many different areas of medicine in this country but none of them were able to give her a diagnosis.
It’s only through her own persistence and research she came across a condition called Elhers Danlos Syndrome or EDS for short.
EDS is a rare genetic condition which affects the connective tissue in the body meaning that the joints have hypermobility – more flexible, and hyper extensibility of the skin so it is thinner, stretchy, and bruises much easier, it’s very fragile and takes longer to heal when it is cut or torn.

Nadine risks Internal decapitation every second of every day.
